Google Honors Japanese Go Player On D-Day 70th
Unreal. Sometimes you have to wonder what liberals are thinking.
Check it out:
As people around the world commemorated the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings at Normandy in World War II, search engine giant Google instead decided to draw attention to Japanese Go legend Honinbo Shusaku, who was born on June 6.
In a major blunder, Google put up the Doodle on Google’s UK website, before taking it down and replacing it with a Remembering D-Day link below the search bar that goes to a series of photographs hosted on the Google Cultural Institute web page.
The same D-Day link is present on the main Google.com page, as well as on the French Google. The link is not present on the Canadian Google, even though Canadian troops were among those who landed on D-Day.
Google told the British press that the Doodle had gone up on the UK page “in error.”
While the Doodle has been taken down from the UK page, it is the default image for many Google sites around the world, including Japan, Hong Kong, Ireland, and Greece, as well as the country playing defense on D-Day, Germany.
